Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Registered Nurse, and work part-time at Valencia College (Orlando, FL) in the Nursing Arts Lab. I married the love of my life, Troy Holt Barnes on April 6,2008. I am the proud parent of 2 grown sons from a previous marriage. Both of my maternal grand-parents were from the K-Ville, Screven, Appling, Georgia areas. Both of my paternal grandparents were from the Calhoun, Gordon County areas of Georgia. I am the grand-daughter of Leonard David Griffis and Sarah Alice Thornton-Griffis and Roy Lee Cronon and Beulah Mevara McCollum-Cronon. I am interested in resarching geneolgy for the Carter/Griffis, Boatright/Thornton, and Cronon/McCollum and Towe families.

Sarah Boatright Thornton
Could you link Sarah Boatright Thornton 25579102 to parents Simon Peter Boatright 46464258 & Amy M "Nolie" Bratcher Boatright 46464554. Sarah is the only one of 9 children not linked to her parents memorial page. Thanks

New photo of Mack Griffis
Renee, I put a new photo of Mack and his wife on his memorial so you may want to rearrange the photos. I took the photo when I visited them...very fond memories of the visit. What happened to the home place? Did it used to be the original Griffis home? Bob
PS Have you heard anything about how Oreeda is doing by any chance?

Thank you!
Rene, So good hearing from you. I have had a very difficult time with mom's passing. She was my best friend and traveling companion (she loved Gettysburg). I cherished every moment that I spent with her but it is not an easy thing to lose a mother. I am still working as a nurse case manager on a psychiatric unit (where I belong...ha!)Please keep in touch. Regards! Bob

Rene, I found a picture of Carl Griffis in mom's belongings and I added it to his memorial. Hope all is well. Bob

Parents of HH Brannon
The note you have on his grave site is incorrect, You have his mother listed twice, she is Mary Vernon Taylor and was also known as Mollie--his father was Alexander Holt Brannon--I am also related to the Barnes, My grandmother was Ollie Belle Braswells, this was on my father's side--would like to know how your husband is related to the Barnes from Eufaula, Al
